Prevent More Trauma

When a child is sexually abused, the top priority should be preventing more trauma. I have been to so many workshops where people dealt with childhood sexual abuse where it was clear most of the damage was done after the event, sometimes long after the event, by untrained hysterical or overly religious people. About the worst thing someone can do is tell the child they are permanently scarred or unclean and their life is ruined.
